President For A Day
Have you thought about what it would be like to be the president of Widener University?
Well, now you can seize the day – one day to be exact – to sit in the corner office of Old Main. For one day during the spring semester, President Harris will swap roles with you as you become “President for a Day.” Students, faculty, and administrators will call you, "Madam or Mister President."
That’s right, President Harris attends your classes and takes on your obligations as a student, for a day, while you attend the events and meetings on his schedule and run the university. All undergraduate students are encouraged to apply before January 14, 2014.
